Avant Dotticure

Hello gentle readers.

I like to do a little nail art, now and again. As I am not terribly talented in the art of art, I fall back on the easier techniques. Dotting is one at which I am normally pretty successful so I do it often.

This mani was done with some of the polishes from the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection. I began with a base of Keep Calm, Paint On. Oh! That polish behaved horribly! It dragged, streaked, bubbled, got thick and gloopy and gloppy. It was just terrible. How it could go from swatching so nicely to applying to all of my nails in such a manner is beyond me. I became so frustrated with it, I damn near threw it out the window. No joke... It almost went flying. I somehow managed to finish painting my nails. I dumped a bunch of thinner in the bottle and shook it up. Hopefully, that will help it to behave better in the future because I have to tell you, this polish is gorgeous but if it behaves again like it did the last time? It's out of here!

I did the dots with a couple of different sized dotting tools and Tarty For the Party, Fancy Pants and Dandy Lyin' Around. I topped it all with Seche Vite.

Thank you for stopping by and reading. Have yourselves a great day And may your polish never bubble.

  7. Thank you very much. I'll tell ya, a little nail art and some Seche Vite cover a misbehaving base polish beautifully. :D


I love to know what you're thinking. I dig honest discourse and lively discussion, even a good debate. I do not dig hate speech or personal attacks either against myself or my gentle readers.
